Man is hit by a train – level 1

22-12-2015 07:00

This news is from Poland. A man is riding a bike. He approaches a level crossing. He ignores the red light. He does not stop.

A train hits the man. He flies backwards. He falls on the ground.

A driver sees this. He comes to the man. The man is lucky. He is OK.

Difficult words: approach (to get closer and closer to), level crossing (a place where a road and a railway cross – touch), ignore (to not pay attention to something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about the train hitting this man?
